Folks, how do you possibly narrow down the many choices and options for a quality side by side.
something with power, built to last, 4 seater, for farm and camping and kentucky hills and mountains….

I've got 5 UTV's as work vehicles. 8 hours a day, 365 days a year. Swampy, woodsy, lots of broken trees. The stuff that's on there has lots of punctures, slow leaks, etc. I spend way too much time keeping the tires up. So I need recommendations for good tough tires that are very puncture resistant, sidewalls too, and have good traction in lots of muddy conditions all year long. But i can't pay $300/tire.
Live in GA, hunt in KS and I picked up a 2017 Massimo MSU500 and so far just love this thing. I'm lightly customizing it now. Definitely better than my old Grizzly 660 for my current KS hunting.
Ill be picking your brains for info so thanks in advance to you pros for all your help and advice.
I just bought a Buck 450X... right before discovering this board and reading a lot of not-so-good posts. But I hope I'm right when I believe that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and surely there must be plenty of happy Massimo owners out there and I don't need to return my new toy to Lowe's.
So... if you own a Massimo and like it, I'd love to hear from you! Please let me know what you like and enjoy about it and if you've had only minor or no issues - compared to other posts I've read.

Brand new UTV owner. I've been driving a Polaris Sportsman 500 for a few years. We bought a Coleman Outfitter 400 a week ago today, and still trying to figure it out. Would really like to find a repair manual for it, if anybody can point me in the right direction. Our ATV/UTV are primarily to make life easier for us on our small horse place, but now that we have a SXS, we look forward to exploring some of the smaller back roads together. My husband is the mechanic of the family, and found that a repair manual REALLY helped after we bought the VERY well used Polaris a few years ago.
We have the owner's manual, but the nearest place that might provide warranty work/repairs is a two hour drive from here, best we can figure out, so an actual repair/service manual will be really helpful, especially once the warranty is up.
